South Habersham Middle

Posted On: Tuesday, November 13, 2018

On Friday, November 9, 2018, students at South Habersham Middle School had the honor of interacting with several local veterans and learning their stories first hand.  Our Veterans Celebration looked a little different from past years, but both students and veterans enjoyed the hands-on opportunities provided by this year's format.


During our Veterans Celebration, students participated in three interactive stations:

  • Station 1:  Students participated in classroom discussions with a veteran.
  • Station 2:  Students learned about the different branches of the military.
  • Station 3:  Students learned the proper way to fold a flag OR they had the opportunity to try on military gear.

After rotating through the stations, everyone joined together in the gym for a flag raising ceremony.  A brunch was held in the media center following the ceremony.

Thank you to all of our Veterans who made this a great learning experience for our students!  We appreciate you!
